Yes Hunt I used to quite like, but not anymore. He has already been told No and he keeps agitating. What can he hope to gain from that. He is just being such a Jerk.I feel so sorry for Flanno- he's a seriously impressive guy- reminds me of the one man band- guitar, drums with his feet, mouth organ all going at once. He's trying so hard to turn this club around at so many levels. You can see a clear strategy emerging with his finger prints all over the various elements of that strategy. Firstly, gain the commitment and trust of your captain and best player to build the team around. Second, get the best off field coaching, strength and fitness staff so that the 2024 team will at least well be able to compete on the score of fitness and hardness- areas we lacked this year ( Flanno was working on changes to the Gong gym the other day) . Thirdly, build morale and create a link with the clubs past greats and high profile supporters like Mark Taylor, to remind players of what this club means to its passionate fans . Fourthly, getting rid of the joint venture mentality and rotating Chairperson position- this is one club. Appointing Lancaster as the Chair for at least the next couple of years is a step in the right direction. Fifth, keeping both Sydney and Illawarra fans in touch with their team and at the same time perhaps making the club more attractive to future recruits by switching a training night up Kogarah.
And then along came Hunt and said what he said and undid one and made 2, 3, 4 and 5 much more difficult for poor old Flanno. If he can keep this limited team motivated and performing better than 2023 with a diffident captain, he should be the next one to have a statue along the Dragons Walk.
